Tuesday weather report

Morning y'all, this morning is looking a lot like yesterday morning. Mostly clear skies and 34F. All of the schools are closed. They were closed yesterday for the Martin Luther King, Jr., holiday, they are closed today because we are forecast to get snow. The snow may start as rain or mixed precipitation later this morning, temperatures are expected to fall and by afternoon we will see accumulating snow, 2 to 4 inches by sunset, then another 1 to 3 inches tonight. The forecast low is 10F and tomorrow temperatures will barely make it over 20F. I do find it silly that all the school systems announced closures by 10 PM last night. When I was in school, you went to school regardless of the weather forecast. If it started to snow and was accumulating on the roads, they closed early, but that meant you did not have a day to make up at the end of the school year. I'm off to work as the family will spend today making the arrangements for my brother-in-law.

-3F under clear skies with -19F wind chill. Received two inches of snow starting late yesterday afternoon into the nighttime hours. Today's weather word is COLD! Even with a mostly sunny sky most of the day, temperatures will struggle to rise into the single digits across most of the area. Thankfully, winds from the northwest will back down to 5 to 15 mph.

Low of 37F here in Orinda, CA, might get up to 65F today. Problem is, it's still bone dry -- the drought continues, and might persist until April. We're supposed to reduce water consumption by 20%. I went for a hike in the hills beyond our house a couple of days ago, and the brush was so dry, it's brittle. We're seeing coyotes and bobcasts coming down, looking for fodder. That high-pressure system sitting over CA is doing a number on us.

I didn't know you were in Orinda, Joker. When did you move there?

Same here in Lake County, the animals are coming down from the hills looking for food and water. We have more birds feeding on our back deck than I've seen in quite a while. I wonder what's keeping that high pressure parked over California?

I've been checking the defensible area around our house just in case we get any brush fires around the area. Better now than later, right?

Hey Whizzer, we actually moved a couple of days after Christmas. Hectic holiday season! Great schools, we really love it here. Our place backs up to a hillside slope, and we've got about a third-of-an-acre ourselves that we'll need to keep clear. Thought about cutting back on watering the lawn, but that would just make us more of a fire hazard, I reckon.

How am I supposed to tell the difference? :rofl:

Uhhhhmmmmm... good question.

Let's see...

France is socialist and California is... oh...

France has overly restrictive labor laws and California does... oh...

In France male bicyclists shave their legs and women generally do not, but in California... uhhh, not really sure...

I'll have to get back to you on this question! :lol:
